What is VAT and when is it applied?

When you purchase something on the Moovly website, such as a subscription, VAT may be applied to the amount you have to pay. VAT stands for Value Added Tax, and is a tax added by the government to the purchase price.

Whether VAT is applied and if so, how much, depends on who you are (a person or a business) and on the country you live in:

  • If you are based outside the European Union, no VAT is applied by us. You should however always comply with your national tax laws.
  • If you are an individual customer based in the European Union, VAT is applied. The amount of VAT that is charged will depend on your country.
  • If you are a company based in Belgium, with a valid VAT-number, then 21% VAT is applied.
  • If you are a company based in the European Union but outside Belgium, with a valid VAT-number, then no VAT is applied. If your VAT number is not valid, then VAT will be charged. You can check your VAT-number on http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/.
